Dr. Teresa's Network Story...

My inspiration to become a Network practitioner was…

… my own experience of the profound effect NSA can have. At the age of 22, I was plagued almost every morning with neck pain so bad I couldn’t turn my head to whatever side had seized up that day. Four months of trying different things to no avail left me feeling frustrated and scared. A friend referred me to her chiropractor, and with that simple gesture, the course of my life was changed. Out of physical pain in two visits, I began to notice my posture, a LOT. I had never paid attention before, and soon I couldn’t help hearing the messages my body was sending me. That communication deepened and the texture and quality of my life became richer and richer. It was through those Network strategies in my body that I came to the decision to embark on this adventure of practicing NSA!

The most rewarding thing about practicing NSA is…

… being able to help people and do some good in our world. Practicing NSA is my way of expressing my true nature—teaching people how to find their own truth, within themselves, and encouraging them to share the unique gifts they possess. I love being able to share the healing perspectives of NSA: how to go to the place of ease, not defense; why tension and stress are meant to be used as fuel, not minimized or avoided; what embodied awakening feels like. It is my way of contributing to the future of our world, and to our legacy to the children.

I have personally benefited from NSA care in the following ways…

… My relationship with my body is now one of trust, high regard, compassion, and love. My capacity to love myself unconditionally is a profound gift from my body. Receiving consistent care helped me to find the courage to quite my 7-year computer career, to move across the country for love, and to live my life with boldness and joy. Not only am I free of chronic pain, my nervous system transforms experiences of sickness and hardship into opportunities for self-revelation. My spine helps me to eat stress for breakfast, and spit it out as personal growth!

The most amazing miracles I have seen in my practice are…

… people who move from suffering and fear of their bodies to embodied peace and ease. When a practice member notices, acknowledges, and connects with the healing rhythms and energy in their body, they sit up with a special kind of groundedness and power in their face—and I know in that moment a confidence is being experienced that far surpasses what any achievement or external success could instill.

I love NSA because…

… it just keeps getting better! Having received Network care these last twelve years, I can say with assurance, that there is no ceiling to the progressive benefits of this work. My capacity for connection and self-actualization only evolves with ongoing care, and every discovery, transformation, and awakening I experience helps me to become MORE myself.
